We hope you are all doing OK in these extraordinary and challenging times.
While our centres are temporarily shut and face to face group work and mentoring is on pause, we are still here and available for you! The Regenerate team have been working out the best ways to offer a remote service to young people based in Roehampton, Putney and our surrounding areas so that young people are supported at this time. This is what we have planned…
Get Connected: Social Media Activities
From next week the youth team will be posting ways that young people and our wider community of stakeholders can continue to engage with us online through challenges, creative activities, and live stream videos from our Instagram account.
We welcome all young people to keep track of this. If you are new to Regenerate please message us on our insta account or email us and we will get in touch with you personally.
If you are a parent or carer this is also a place for you to find out what Regenerate is up to. If you would like to connect with a member of the team to find out more about our services or if you would like any other family support please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help.
Get Active: Online Group Chats and activities:
For our Get Active programme (which usually takes place at the youth centres) we will be increasing our online presence to make sure that young people have a youth worker to talk to and continue to feel very much part of the Regenerate community.
We’re going to be organising online workshops for those who regularly attend our centres or are interested in taking part in the Get Active programme. These workshops will be fun, creative and active ways that young people can improve and maintain their health and wellbeing and meet with friends in a positive way.
To get involved, sign up to the relevant workshop by emailing Jordangayle@regenerateuk.co.uk, more details on the Get Active workshops schedule to come later in the week …
Get Focused: Online Mentoring for young people.
If you want someone to talk to or are perhaps really struggling at the moment, then you can also get in touch with us either via social media, by using the contact page on our website or emailing us. We will do all we can to help. This might involve giving you information about further support or arranging a phone / video call with one of our mentors or counsellor. The mentors will provide a safe space for you to talk and be heard and they can help to provide you with extra support. They can support parents and families by connecting you with the right people and places to go.

Get Working: Online support.
The Feel Good Bakery kitchen is currently out of action but TFGB team members are still employed and using this time to focus on their personal development plans with our staff. We are working out how to use the bakery kitchen to support people that need it the most over the coming months. If you are interested in finding out more about The Feel Good Bakery check out our website or email Luke@thefeelgoodbakery.com
Get Leading: online group chats and volunteering
The Get Leading group will gather through online group chats. The group will explore ways to support young people and their families in the community through charitable work and volunteering. This might be through mentoring young people online through the Get focused programme, preparing activities for the Get Active programme or supporting food banks or relief services where appropriate. They will also continue to support each other in their personal development plans.
So, make sure you’re following us on our social media channels or email us and we will be in touch.
Stay safe and well,
Love from everyone at Regenerate.
